Is there a book out there which guides you how to create html templates and sell them on theme forest? maybe a guide of some sort, video tutorial, link, site or something similar?
Tutsplus has a short guide on WP, not sure about HTML. You can find it here – http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/a-roadmap-to-publishing-wordpress-themes-for-themeforest--wp-28896
And a question to you – we are thinking of creating such lesson and would be really interested to gather some statistics – how much would you be willing to pay for an in-depth video tutorial on how to create a high quality HTML theme and upload it to themeforest?
Thanks to all of you guys for your offers,. i have find the dev for my momental template now, thread can be removed.

Looking for some more
wanted to ask if you might be interested in converting some of my items to e-mail templates ?
if interested, please let me know.
That’s because it’s an HTML template, not a Wordpress theme. There’s no Wordpress version for that template. The WP ones start at least from $35.
I understand that sometimes the review process can be quite frustrating but this case is different. There’s nowehere mentioned they are obliged to check our themes right away, and calling reviewers irresponsible when it’s clearly mentioned how long the process takes is a bit harsh and unrespectful, I guess…
$1600 for a skilled and experienced worker (in the western world) is not right. That amount gets you an entry level job that does not require any skills/experience (at least in western Europe it does). Your bank teller/clerk does not have any hard marketable skills/experience and the experienced Wordpress developer does.
Even in the lower wage countries in Asia, experienced and skilled PHP/Wordpress developers can do better then this nowadays.Anyways, that does not have there won’t be a right fit for this job and I’m sure the OP will end up finding the right guy/gal for the job
I believe you missed my point. Here’s the deal – if you hold a PhD, you probably won’t be able to get that bank job in US because there’s such a term as “overqualified” whereas employer understands that the job is not gonna be interesting for you as you have higher skills and you won’t be a good team player perhaps. Still, you can hide the fact that you hold a PhD and get that job. No matter what your skills are – you take that bank job, you get low salary. Want a higher paid one – go with another job option where you’ll use your PhD skills and get paid accordingly. It’s exactly the same situation here I believe.
UP. We need developers with HIGH Knoweledge of WordPress and PHP…. thanks.
I believe people with ah HIGH knowledge of WP and PHP could pretend to a bigger monthly salary. I know this may make quite a few people perfectly happy and understand that you need to stick to a budget in terms of support – but you are closing the door on many talented WP / PHP guys from America, Australia & most of Europe with such a remuneration for a full-time position.
I am not saying this to be mean or picky, and i am not trying to offend you in any way ( i have been a big fan of your items for a long while).Good luck – i hope you find the right fit for the job!
Simon, I totally understand your situation and the reason why you’re telling this, however on the other hand let’s face the truth – there’s a market price for every service, no matter where you are located (if it’s a big/expensive city, salaries are indexed accordingly) and the market price for a support person has never been high (rare exceptions excluded). Now I believe $1600 for full-time support person is quite fair price (it’s more than many other authors offer and is at least equal to market price), considering the person will have the luxury of working from home and not having the strict 9-5 schedule. Of course this won’t cover your expenses in many countries/cities but let’s take this example – if you are working on answering calls in a bank (which is not a high salary job either and you can make <= $1600 in US for such a job as a matter of fact), you can be really good and get “Best worker of month” badge and diploma but you just can’t get promoted to a manager just because you did a good job. Same goes to support – if you’re the support person, you have X salary and if you’re the developer, you have Y salary. Making the transition from X to Y is totally up to person though
